before about soaring oil prices and mitt romney and the plan to get the united states of america, energy independent by 2020. and the fact that the keystone pipeline locked by barack obama. off the coast of virginia, the obama administration is blocking the creation of new jobs and oil exploration, and the middle east and the strangle hold that the middle east has on our economy, will be a major issue in this election, and it's all about the economy. >> and it's all about the economy, and i want it know where we see mitt romney break out and take a convincing lead. and you said, incouple bent always lead at labor day, when does mitt romney jump out ahead. when? >> stuart, i think it's going to be a classic sweet 16 kind of final four matchup where you have an underdog, which clearly, any challenger, including mitt romney is an underdog that hits the three-point shot at the end and the grass roots win and we take our country back and that's how this is going to play out. >> i'm going to wait until october before i see a breakout. >> absolutely, and i did mix metaphors, basketball and foot
to us by the congress of the united states which represents the american people. >> what does that mean in terms of numbers? >> 2% growth. >> are we at two? kevin was very careful, he went 1.5 to 1.75. >> that's very precise. >> i want basis points. >> decimal points is silly stuff, come on, joe. >> i know. >> there is positive growth, it's just not robust and the key point, it's not enough to create the jobs we need in this country. now, i argue and i argue forcefully, i'll give a speech on this tomorrow night here in new york, the reason we have so much uncertainty is not just uncertainty about europe and uncertainty about the slowdown in china, these are important things. the real uncertainty stems from what are my taxes going to be? what kind of spending pattern also come out of the federal government, how do i deal with this explosion of regulatory morass we have coming out of washington. how do you budget whether you are exxon or a little bitty 20-person company, how does the woman who runs that company or the man who runs that company budget when they have no idea what their cost
of people protesting this anti-muslim film made here in the united states. dagen: rick leventhal from fox news joins us live. rick. >> the pakistani government declared today a national holiday, love for the prophet. nonviolence, but things got ugly fast. and across the streets of pakistan including islamabad to keep protesters from approaching the consulate there. and demonstrations in karachi, five movie theaters were burned and a couple of banks on fire. and one officer killed there. and in peshawar, hundreds of demonstrators set movie theaters on fire and police used tear gas. at some point opened the fire on the people and hit a pakistani news vehicle and killed the driver there. and they were marching through the streets and protesting the anti-muslim film and burned a makeshift coffin draped with an american flag and burned an effigy of president obama and around middle east and africa and security has been beefed up at a number of u.s. and western embassies around the region as a precaution, guys. dagen: rick, thank you for that reporting. connell: and nicole, the new york stock e
the president of the united states. there are things that can relieve the price of oil we are not doing. dagen: is it healthy that this is not the kind of shock that we saw in 2008 where it will spike above $100 a barrel, was $135 a barrel at the high. oil has remained relatively high for the american people in the last few years and got me chance to learn to live with it. >> that is true but also hurts everybody. certainly the lower end of the economy if you are a person who has to drive a long distance to work and you have to shell out that much more for your pay, it is a problem. natural gas is going to be a substitute that will have its day. we have an unlimited supply. dagen: would you invest in oil and commodities? >> i am already invested in oil and commodities to a great extent because as i said inflation is a genie in the bottle that will get out sooner or later and ben bernanke and all the politicians in the world can't bribe themselves enough to keep it in. dagen: it would take a healthy economy to trigger that and this economy is not. >> it does not take a healthy economy to trigge
this morning. they'll just try to get a share of the touch screen market in the united states. to your point about cash going out, more smart phones being sold than expected it is still a big shortage so the move today, is that indicative of -- >> they're not going out of business. >> even though the core operations remain unprofitable. their cash build was 2.3 from 2.2 on the quarter. >> they had more cash than previously. >> and their shipments continue to go down. they bleed people. >> you have the developing countries now. >> the pricing pressure is greater. >> there's always ban thought someone would buy them. but people felt why buy them because they'll run out of money and when they run out of money you can get them for nothing and you get all that intellectual property for nothing. there's a lot of companies that wish they had that keyboard patent. maybe that is worth something. i'm just saying that, look. i want the blackberry 10 to ship earlier. i thought becky's interview was terrific. it's very difficult to be as negative as you might have been before knowing that the restructuri
in the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. but there is absolutely no justification in this type of senseless violence. none whatsoever. >> it is obvious that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. gerri: what you make of this? >> this is disgraceful. we have nothing to apologize for. finally from the white house had to come out and expose their lies that the libyan attack was premeditated, it was a terrorist attack and had nothing to do with the video. the fact of the matter is the apology by the president of the united states, the secretary of state has made us more vulnerable to further attacks, the excuse that they wanted us to believe, and now, our president has been the excuse to be valid for the attacks that we are seeing, not only in libya, but the attacks that we have seen in egypt on our embassy and throughout the middle east. gerri: john, i would like to turn to you. the administration appears to be changing its tune on the cause of this attack. ja
economy and that's why the united states must do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> and that's president obama speaking at the u.n. yesterday and ahmadinejad speaks today. in the next hour, the american muslim's response from the american islamic forum for democracy. joining us at 10:15. and elizabeth warren making headlines again, but do you remember this? >> in this country, who got rich on his own, nobody. you built a factory out there good for you, but i want to be clear, you moved your goods to markets on the roads to paid for. >> the woman who started the income envy debate with that rant. turns out she was getting paid by a steel company and that against the unions. could it be true? and that's not all. questions whether she's licensed to practice law. that is just one of our new at ten stories. and then we have barnes & noble. it's got a lighter and thinner e-reader. so, nicole, is the stock up? >> oh, yeah, the stock is up lighter, thinner, high def. you want 7 inches, you want 9 inches, want to be able to read in the dark and do you want a strong
the united states does not talk about trickle-up economics, take that 80%, educate them, make them pay taxes, and stop charging the top 5% more and more for what they create. why is that conversation not happening here? >> well, that's part of why inet, the institute for new economic thinking, was founded. james heckman at university of chicago and nobel prize-winning economist and i are working on a major program. we have 179 people worldwide on early-age human capital, early-age education which includes public health. >> you just have to put more resources into the education system to make it work. >> and better allocation of incentives, absolutely right. you're talking about a national tragedy. >> the word "resources" is loaded especially this week when we've got chicago teachers facing a potential injunction. >> yes. >> overturning citizens united, right, is not going to -- is not going to pacify what's happening outside. >> mm-hmm. >> neither is paying teachers more or giving them a shorter school year. right? >> i think if you paid teachers more, say relative to other professions, you
that word, the auto industry of the united states at that time? >> it sounds like rhetoric. but -- and it is rhetoric, i guess, because it's words. but i think they're actually factual words. president bush and hank paulson agree because they were the first ones to provide capital to the auto industry. if the government had not stepped in, these companies would have had to literally shut their doors, they would have run out of cash, had to lay off their workers. the suppliers would have gone down. ford would have gone down. the industry would have shut down. whether it would have ultimately liquidated would depend on what would have happened after that. >> that is not the case. and in fact we got some very strong numbers earlier this week. are you surprised at the strength of auto sales at this point? >> no, i'm not surprised because you need to sell 15 million cars a year in this country simply to keep the fleet from aging. and we have not done that now for over four years. this is unprecedented in american history. so you have a huge amount of pent-up demand for cars beca
of a significant downturn in the united states economy. >> so if you have a downturn, there's a possibility that you don't have that right mix and that you could have a downturn. the odds of that are comparatively low but i worry about it because it's significant possibility. i described it as though, imagine you're on an airplane that's flying from here to los angeles, you're probably going to get there okay but if you hit an air pocket and meaning if the economy goes down, there's not an easy way to reverse it. monetary policy is less effective because when you buy a bond, when the federal reserve makes a purchase, that has the effect of giving money to somebody who won't put that money into something like that bond. and that money does not easily go to people who spend it, that's a balance between monetary and fiscal policy and i worry about the policymakers getting that balance right. that's a possibility and a scary possibility. other than that, i think the most likely situation is we will fly successfully from here to los angeles essentially but we have longer risks. you need a balanc
of the market. it is in the hands of the eflt cb not the hands of united states. >> we should point out tomorrow we will get some sort of plan or are expecting to from the ecb perhaps some details about a bond buying plan of some kind that we're hearing some things about today. the market may be disappointed in that these reports seem to indicate they'd be targeting three years and less in terms of maturity. that they would not have a yield target perhaps, say we're not going to let it go above 7%, and that it would be sterilized purchases. there are some who believe, hey, you need to actually increase the money supply. really if you're going to get things moving in europe but of course the germans are always concerned about inflation and sterilization which basically means they'll try and take in as much in deposits as they buy in bonds. sort of keeping -- >> somebody tweeted this morning fed bernanke needs to show them how you really print money. and, jim, one other facet of this report is that the head of the bach the german still remains the one lone hold out to this bond buying policy meani
. but here in the united states, with respect to the rally, i'm getting a large number of questions. we're getting a large number of questions about whether or not the stimulus boost from federal reserve easing is what it used to be, so to speak. i would remind people take a look at the last couple of instances, we've had similar measures. we've had similar instances of people wondering whether the fed was -- if i had $1 for every time we talked about the fed being out of bullets, i'd have lots of dollars. and we're going through that again. >> they would all be worth less. >> the previous dollar, yes. >> less than maybe ten years ago. not necessarily less than five years ago. >> shame on you for that populist comment there that you should be cutting taxes in europe. at what point do you think the spanish are going to cut taxes given the situation that they're in? shame on you for appealing to your republican base in such a shameless way. >> btig's clients would be interested to know that i had a republican base, but listen. at the end of the day, there isn't a sort of a one-size-fits-a
aren't moving anywhere. it's on hope they can get it rationalized. united states is on fire and everyone keeps saying why can't we buy ford. because of latin america and europe. >> facebook, a bit backward looking, but the best day yesterday since that ipo. it's almost you can't say ipo without saying botched ipo. that's the way everybody says it. was there a turn yesterday? >> i think that you're going to have a well p like situation is what people hope. yelp was a giant lock up that expired and all the shorts were piled on. it went up seven. you have to bet that everyone is overly short facebook to get this thing going. i think it's more of the dynamics of the lock up in actual earnings. >> the big lock up is coming november and by november, we'll have more than a million shares hit the market. >> that's a big lock up to overcome. >> aig was remarkable. had 600 million shares hit, but aig of course was valued at half book. facebook, not valued at half book. >> taking a look at the financials, it is worth noting because xlf closed at five-month highs. taking a bit of a brea
to keep order. it's sort after metaphor what's happening in the united states and countries all around the world where you have, you think you can solve every problem by new regulation, and you have so many different regulations concerns unsportsman like conduct. about ten of them delay of games and illegal, tackler using a helmet to butt. too many regulations for problems on the field. >> and so should the nfl cave and pay more to the regular refs to get them back? >> no, too many-- >> we're going to get e-mails on this, and we will watch whether we've got replacement refs or regular refs. >> we'll watch. >> of course we will. >> and i'll watch, there you go. >> two stories from two states, each will make you angrier than the next, first, union heads give chicago teachers a goldstar for their strike, that shut down schools in seven days, and then, there is california, the formerly golden state where the governor is set to sign a bill that could push even more businesses right out of the state. next. ♪ stuart: new at 10:00 a.m., a truly only in california story. all signs point to je
the president has taken office, for every one dollar added to the economy, the united states has added more than 3 dollars in debt. while there's been a 12% increase in economic output, there's been a 50% increase in the national debt. those are the numbers. here's something not to get lost today. one of the biggest names in america business says the economy is getting worse. we're going to have more on why fedex is lowering its outlook. dagen: you wonder why oil is selling off. one of the biggest names in the bond market, he is here in studio. bob auwaerter coming on. bank of america, merrill lynch just said gold going to end up going to $2400 an ounce. we know how those often work out. look at oil at $96 a barrel.

. that will prove costly. one thing we want to remember is that the united states went through a period where there was a sharp contraction through government. i am talking about the end of world war ii. since we have this. brief and cutbacks in government spending, the recession was painful but very brief and then we entered into a period of prolonged prosperity. we can't afford deep cutbacks and spending. we cannot afford very big increases by taxation. gerri: big increases by taxation. will that create another recession? there are lots of signs that we are going there already. >> that is true. we had indications of a worsening of business activity in europe and china. this is beginning to hurt u.s. exports. u.s. consumers and businesses, themselves, are shying away from major expenditures, especially business in terms of capital spending until fiscal cliff uncertainties are resolved. we are not going to resolve those uncertainties until we get the election out of the way. that is why these upcoming presidential debates and october will be of the utmost importance and they very much they ha
and the top 1% or 2% but you need some sort of tax overhaul to make the united states more competitive. connell: we talk about that a lot. the first part, i think it is pretty interesting especially from you. bill clinton argued nobody could have fooled us out of this economic mess in four years and included himself. it sounds like you think we could have been pull out of it but not in a way that some of argued. some argued we need a completely different prescription altogether. you say we needed more money spent than was spent. >> we needed more targeting of what was spent. health care was important but that should have been the second priority. first priority should have been no different than when roosevelt took office. the economy, stupid. you have to put people back to work and he has not done a good enough job and he has to get the best and brightest together and come up for the real dialogue. this is what i'm going to do. not just sweeping generalities or romney and ryan are retrograde to what failed in the first place. team needs a positive agenda for america. connell: let me a
manufacturing contracting here in the united states. yesterday, we learned it's contracting in the china for the first time since november and in europe, it continues to contract. and yet, you think that the market is well supported here, why? >> i think it's going to be a range bound market. i think right now, we're in the tougher end of the range. there are two things that are supporting the market. one, there is an economic value to entities and so the lbo or acquisition value is providing support. to the extent companies return cash to shareholders, that offers some support. >> do you see many acquisitions in the market at the moment? >> no, and that's one of the things that's been surprising and disappointing at the same time. it's interesting. there are areas of the market where you've seen capital flow to economic opportunity. for example, buying single family homes to rent them out. which is an arbitrage that was made available by the decline housing prices you haven't seen a comparable level of activity on the corporate side, which is surprising. there are a couple of opportunit
mall fillers, juvaderm, grew high single digit miss the united states. why will the second half be better? one of our competitors was taken off the market by an injunction. we are now regaining market share, year over year we should do better than market growth. 82% market share again in july. >> we spent a lot of time on migraine. i'm starting to see the ads. all these medical ads make it sound like you don't want to take the product. they have a million warnings. but are they driving people to the thousand some migraine specialists you have trained? >> we have both in print branded ads and unbranded ads which talk about the disease awareness about chronic migraine. we have tv ads unbranded as well. in a little way we could say there is a little bit of google how many minutes do they go through and do they go all the way to find a doctor. we have trained neurologists and there is the link. >> i promised you last time because you said, listen, jim. this is big. this is a big second half story. >> yeah. well, first of all, continual growth on this first indication and neurogenic
the united states will avoid the fiscal cliff. peter has more on this in washington. >> the package of tax breaks would not avoid the fiscal cliff, but the usual grab bag of so-called tax extensions that congress approves pretty much every year, big ones like patching the al ten -- alalternative minimum tax, but thanks to big time lobbyists and lawmakers from both parties who want to help companies back home, there are plenty of special interest tax breaks in the package, $78 million, for example, for auto racetrack owners for faster writeoffs of investments, and $248 million for movie and tv studios to keep production in the u.s. when other countries over deals, and deals for electric powered motorcycles to encourage energy goals. they justify all of them, of course, and it's hard to get rid of them. >> only right before an election, last thing members of congress want to do is talk about eliminating tax breaks that others claim help create jobs. >> get this, supporters claim they did get rid of some breaks, 21 provisions including that notorious tax credit for electric golf carts. the pa
of years here in the united states, no matter who's in charge. others think we're headed well down from here. how do you see it? how are you kind of playing this out? >> i really see that the u.s. has one of the most dynamic economies. a lot of entrepreneurs that can always figure out where else to take their companies. and i think this is -- we have seen that in shell gas, where shell gas went from nowhere to 50, 60, now 80 billion cubic meters of annual production. it's unbelievable. and i think this is something that, you know, we do believe in the u.s. economy in the fact that, you know, u.s. cooperations will always come up with new ways of satisfying that demand. >> andrei, thank you. >> thank you. >>> coming up, the jobs report could become a political football on the campaign trail. new england patriot president jonathan kraft will join us with a unique indicator. first, what happens when you send a conservative free market economist to the dnc with a microphone? peter shift found out and he'll join us live at 6:50 a.m. here's a little preview of that. >> how about a cap on prof
for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. customer erin swenson bought so, i'm happy. today. sales go up... i'm happy. it went out today... i'm happy. what if she's not home? (together) she won't be happy. use ups! she can get a text alert, reroute... even reschedule her package. it's ups my choice. are you happy? i'm happy. i'm happy. i'm happy. i'm happy. i'm happy. happy. happy. happy. happy. (together) happy. i love logistics. >>> why is no one worried about the transports? here's a question i was asked three times on friday. three times this weekend online. until the rebound today, this group has been horrendously weak. lots of people actually really are worried about the transports or they wouldn't be asking about them. second, it doesn't seem to matter that lots of people are worried about the transports, even if it say
colorado is remax ceo margaret kelly. we see their signs all over the united states. margaret, you would be the perfect person where we could check the temperature gauge. but the question that we ask is the most often-asked question, and that is, have we finally bottomed out because it matters to people who are looking to buy, to sell -- to buy, to sell, to refie, or to invest? -- to re-fi or to invest? >> you are exactly right. yes, i really do think we have bottomed out. the good numbers are for 14 months in a row we have had more sales each month for 14 months and the prices have gone up for the last 7 months. those are all great signs for us. in january i was cautiously optimistic. now i'm optimistic. liz: now we are going into the fall season. i never can figure out with you guys. oh the spring is the buying season. the fall is selling season. what is it as we head into fall? >> usually what happens, families like to move in the summer and they like to get their kids in by fall for school, and so usually fall into probably the first of the year, things start to taper off. so if it d
economic growth in the united states. you talk about it all the time on cnbc. you have policy people on. but really what we need to do is get government out of the way. this entrepreneur thing happens on its own by its own volition as long as tax policy is correct. that's what they were talking about. you get situations like entrepreneurs that become very successful, fror instance, zuckerberg and some of the millionaires he's created are splitting off and investing their own. they don't just sit on their cash, buy a yacht and sail around the world. >> why is one of the big platforms of this election that very issue regarding tax policy? it seems so self-evident to people we rub shoulders with on this trading floor but not to the population at large. >> they think it's gets muddied. if you talk about the capital gains tax. there was a guest on earlier today that says, what's it mean to somebody making $50,000? lowering the capital gains tax to somebody like that is the most important thing you can do because corporations are going to create jobs. people invest in start-ups that can creat
in the united states. maybe you do own them. >> do you know who has heard of them? >> who? >> jim cramer. >> the deal is worth approximately $35.75 a share. i don't know what type of medical devices they make. you know, i like a lot of things. i don't mind seeing toys made in china, that's fine, that's good. my defibrillator, maybe not. >> there are problems with defibrillators made here. >> that's true. my 737, no. >> no? >> you fly around on chinese airplanes? >> the iphone. the iphone doesn't crash. >> chinese car if you lock your keys in them, you get a can opener and you can easily break into your car like a lunar landing module, you put your elbow right through it if you -- >> what do you want me to say? >> that amazon is planning an online marketplace? >> amazon is planning an online market place for wine sales, the second attempt to sell wines to consumers after a partner problem forced them to end the first one three years ago. they held a workshop in napa this week with members of the napa valley vintners association. they are planning to charge wineries a 15% commission on sal
a month or so and you see iron ore stocks, you see machinery stocks in the united states and other parts of the world rally off the back of this notion of china stimulus, are all those things built on false expectations? >> we need to look at those charts. and most of those charts have fallen very sharply in the last two months. so what we experience through our trading book on friday with short coverings, we didn't see long-only investors coming in and buying stocks this morning. what i do think is different and you've highlighted that asia has recovered -- talking about a recovery -- the local investors do seem to be more excited by this new story than we've seen for some period of time. particularly noting that cement stocks rallied quite hard today in shanghai. so that is interesting that the local investors are somewhat more enthused about this story than we've seen for months. >> okay. adrian, thank you so much for phoning in. we appreciate it. adrian mowat of jpmorgan. >>> it's interesting this morning that stocks are essentially hanging on to the sharp gains that they made last w
camera again is everybody wants equal opportunity and fairness in the united states. it's just when that breaks down and you don't think it's fair. and you know what else plays into it? is corporate cronyism and the kablt ability to succeed but not to fail. we talk about these things in a perfect world. and it's not perfect. and that's when we get things that need to be rectified and people feel like they're getting screwed, basically. >> no, there's a feeling, and the feeling is enhanced in a downturn, a bubbly economy is when people feel better. i have to add these problems may seem, you know, to be challenges for us. they're big challenges in other places. >> worse than here. >> oh, yeah. india has had momentum stall and a loss of investor confidence from some really dumb stuff. >> you think we can get our mojo back, mike? >> oh, yeah. >> you do? >> yeah, i think so. partly because there's so many parts of the economy on the private sector side that are dynamic and functioning fine. i think people will get motivated and get back in the game. the real question marks frankly on our
